American Airlines has signed a firm order with Embraer for 15 E175 aircraft in a 76-seat configuration valued at $705 million based on current list prices which will be delivered in 2020.

Combined with the airline’s previous orders for the E175, this new contract results in a total of 104 E175 jets for the carrier since 2013. The most recent order took place in May 2018 for 15 aircraft.

American Airlines selected Envoy, a wholly owned subsidiary of American Airlines Group, to operate the 15 aircraft.

Including this new contract, Embraer has sold more than 435 E175s to airlines in North America since January 2013, earning more than 80 per cent of all orders in this 76-seat jet segment.
